of the other cities that are doing really well in terms of open data? >> i should be clear. when san francisco is third, we have a pact. i'll add to that actually. what's great in san francisco is there is not just going to be a chief data officer. there is also the office of civic innovation. jay's team, shannon's team. by having both of those units in place i think there is going to be a really powerful team. because you can't just open up the data. you have to do things like this, where you get the community together or you have people actually talking about it because the demand side, as we were talking about it, will be there because there is going to be someone there. there have to be people working with it who are getting out there. i think this is what this city is going to be really powerful. in terms of other cities doing as well, chicago is doing some really interesting stuff. scary cool stuff. they're taking 3 in 1 data, pothole request and crime report and matching it up with social media. they're getting this really deep and rich picture of what is going on in the city. and you c

is extraordinary city with huge students and hosting responsibilities and an international city with a lot of visitors and with mta what is going on each week and do we have overlap with the bluegrass or fleet week or with the giants like we did. how do we marshal the officers and the parking transit? we can do it and it takes heavy lifting and resources and we learned how to make it more sustainable and to get that level up. having the streetcars and the buses ready in a good state of repair so there are not break downs requiring lead time in the events and look at the procurement cycles and get ahead and have a milestone of this cycle buying this many extra vehicles. we are looking at this now and the workshops -- we had one with the community, the one in december are that opportunity to make sure we're on the right track with their experience. a woman today talked about the experience of crowded trains for the games and i found that too and we have the opportunity for more frequency and reliability and how to make that work and build it into the finance mechanism. mta is very much
the project maybe. it's a gate keeping measure to ensure the city doesn't spend a lot on pre-development cost on a project that is not feasible. in this case that is being borne by the warriors and not subject to reimbursement from the proposal and staff cost and ceqa costs. sorry let me go back. fiscal feasibility has five components which are listed here. so the summary of the fiscal feasibility analysis findings is that the project would generate direct and indirect economic benefits of about $19 million annually and $53,000,000.01 time in city fees. the visitors spending is approximately $60 million a year and there would be 2600 construction jobs and 1700 permanent jobs and those jobs are job year equivalent that created -- construction jobs during the three year construction time frame and those are permanent ongoing jobs that would be supported by the project. project funding we just described the basic structure. okay. for the operation and maintenance cost -- the warriors are going to assume all responsibility for the costs associated with sea wall lot 330 and pier 30-32 and a
city of san francisco mayor ed lee. >> audience: let's go giants! let's go giants. >> let's go giants. wow how thrilled we're are to have the world series champions back in san francisco. what a year it has been. it's been the year of the orange dragon. yeah! . orange october. but you know we have celebrated, we have screamed, we have shouted all year long and once again the giants have captured our imagination and team work and they did the hard work. often we look at sports and we have super stars and we have super stars but there is a motto on the clubhouse wall and it says "25 guys, one common goal, win today". [cheers and applause] and they certainly live up to this motto. when i see young people, all of the city supporting giants gear it's about the impact of this team. it is hard work, perseverance and hard work and work with each other. did bruce bochy and these 25 guys quick when they lost the first two games against cincinnati? no. did they accept the inevitable with st. louis? no. they carried on with determination and experts and pundits predicted that this sa

. this is one of the greatest places in the city i am fond of saying. it's visionary. you heard about that from the mayor already and part of it is san francisco moving forward in a way that other cities just don't do. first and foremost other cities do not pass general obligation bonds of this type for a park and none for waterfront parks so we are already ahead of game that way, and we are proud of the generosity of the electoral for supporting that vision. secondly we don't have many parks and in san francisco there are a couple of open spaces but not in the middle much heavy industry use. this is a working port. work is going on as we speak but it's a place for habitat and a place for our own restoration so it makes it absolutely wonderful for that and you can get here by almost every mode. i would like to say you could take the train and the historic train and i encourage you to ride your bikes and bring your dog. this is the first dog sanctioned area and we're proud of that and i want to say thank you to all the people that made it happen and as mayor lee alluded to it's a

are treated. parking bonds are required of operators to protect the city's interest and provide security for the taxes that the operator holds prior to remitting them to the city. so what happens is when you or i go and park in a parking lot, and we make a payment, we're actually paying the tax at that time. and the operator holds onto that and remit it's a month later. since those operators are holding onto those tax dollars on behalf of the city, we do require some security for that. currently there are seven different levels of bonding required based on how much gross receipt yours operation may have. what we heard back from the park administration after this change was made in late 2010 and instituted in 2011 these were very large bans and in many cases if you had a small increase in your revenues, you could see a doubling of your bonding requirement. so for instance an operator who just had under $1 million in receipts from one year that moved to just over $1 million in receipts the following year would have a doubling of their bond from $200,000 to $400,000. so the proposed leg
conforming changes, the proposal as a whole would make public participation in city decision making even more difficult. even more difficult than sitting in these hard benches for many hours as we've done in many chambers here. and we're concerned that the proposed amendments improperly subvert the important public informed self-government principles of c-e-q-a. so, first and foremost, the repeal of existing appeal procedures and administrative code 31.16 and the replacement with the far more restrictive and limited provision than the proposed amendments to both raise obstacles to development decisions and narrow the scope of the board's review. other specific provisions that raise additional bars to public participation potentially conflict with state law and increase rather than reduce the city's exposure to c-e-q-a litigation and specifically i'm talking about confusing and unnecessarily complex processes for providing notice of c-e-q-a exemption determinations. under the proposed amendment, members of the public must submit written materials regarding an appeal to the board one full day b

>> i have 2 job titles. i'm manager of the tour program as well as i am the historyian of city hall. this building is multifaceted to say the very least it's a municipal building that operates the city and county of san francisco. this building was a dream that became a reality of a man by the name of james junior elected mayor of san francisco in 1912. he didn't have a city hall because it was destroyed in the earth wake of 1906. construction began in april of 1913. in december 1915, the building was complete. it opened it's doors in january 1916. >> it's a wonderful experience to come to a building built like this. the building is built as a palace. not for a king or queen. it's built for all people. this building is beautiful art. those are architecture at the time when city hall was built, san francisco had an enormous french population. therefore building a palace in the art tradition is not unusual. >> jimmie was an incredible individual he knew that san francisco had to regain it's place in the world. he decided to have the tallest dome built in the united states. it's

this one here. firefighters pumped water out of this flooded redwood city apartment complex. >> it was up to a foot deep before we got here. we were able to pump it out. >> reporter: they got the water out before it could cause any damage to the interior of the building. the heavy rain kept this crew moving from one trouble spot to another. >> it's been very busy today. a lot of freeway accidents. >> reporter: a pg&e crew was sent to help restore power, but they needed help themselves after a large oak tree fell on top of their truck. it happened friday night on stevens canyon road. no one was hurt, since the workers were working away from the truck. >> it was bad luck, really, but the drivers said it's the second time it happened to them, so you kind of do feel it's a big dangerous. when it does storm up here, you think a tree is gonna come through your house any second, so it can get scary. >> reporter: james decided to trim the trees around his house after this one fell on his driveway today. but he says that's part of living in the mountains. >> it's really not that bad. everybody has
and i have spoken before the police commission on many occasions and also a resident of the cancer city and county of san francisco for 45 years now. so i'm well-versed on the police activities the city and county of san francisco in richmond. i'm not here to talk about that tonight. i want to talk about the unsolved murder rate in the city and county of san francisco. it's over 1,000 unsolved murders. i got out of navy when officer mcdonald was killed by a pipe-bomb, which is one unsolved murder going over 30 something years. eric mar, went on record supporting exonerate the killers and sponsored legislation because the murders were so long ago she should be forgiven. i don't think any murder in this country should be forgiven under any circumstances at any time. we all run into a problem with the police department and sometimes we have problems with them and sometimes we have battles with them, but nothing justifies murdering a policemen when he is doing his job and letting the murderers go free and then having legislators at city hall at the board of supervisors run on a mandate tha
1957, we are the only city in the world that runs cable cars. these cars right here are part of national parks system. in the early 1960's, they became the first roles monument. the way city spread changed with the invention of the cable car. >> people know in san francisco, first thing they think about is, let's go >> good morning. welcome to the regular meeting of the budget and finance committee. my name is carmen chu, chair of the committee, i'm joined by vice-chair supervisor avenue los. our clerk today is victor young and at sfgtv we have jessie larson and greg burk. mr. young, do you have any announcements for us? >> yes. please turnoff all cell phones and electronic devices. completed speaker cards and any documents to be included as part of the [speaker not understood] should be submitted to the clerk. items acted upon today will appear on december 4, 2012 supervisors agenda unless otherwise stated. >> thank you very much. would you call item 1? >> item 1, resolution approving cellular service equipment sites leases between new cingular wireless pcs, llc nextel of ca
there is extensive noticing, it happens on many actions by the city, in particular extensive noticing by anything that this department does, that we want to maximize noticing through using existing noticing. in other words, if there is a notice that goes out regarding anything that involves a discretionary action that has c-e-q-a underlying it, that that notice would serve -- would tell people that there was an exception or whatever c-e-q-a action is taken and would serve notice that that process will be triggered by whatever the trigger is. in the case of negative declarations exemptions, the triggering action is an action on the discretionary permit. . e-i-rs are not going to change. this is filling a big gap in state law in terms of administering an appeals process and in terms of noticing. there is quite a bit of commentary which, i'll restrain from going too much into in term of where it's coming from, that suggests that somehow this proposal is being consistent with state law. it is restating state law in a couple instances. but since this is essentially gap-filling legislation, it is not g
officials, city agencies, schools, housing builders in ways that we could craft the ordinances that were carried and passed by the city, by supervisor dufty and wiener. and we're therefore puzzled that from what we can tell, no outreach whatsoever has been made to any of the schools or potential housing builders who might be possibly affected by this proposed ordinance. and i think that at a minimum they might have been consulted for their views on ways to address legitimate city interest about housing and how student housing is supposed to work in the city. we don't think that the staff report -- it's a good start, but we don't think it's there yet. we think it needs more work. and it's not clear to us at this point why this ordinance has been proposed. student housing already reports -- and this is the work we did. it has clear reporting requirements to the mayor's office of housing. in addition, schools are required to have institutional master plan. and this appears to be a duplicative unnecessary third layer of reporting. and not sure to what purpose. we've always supported the mon
